Dan Vávra, creator of the Mafia franchise, has co-founded Warhorse, a new studio with a focus on more realistic IP. Also co-founded by Martin Klima (ex-head of Altar Games), the Prague-based outfit staffs veterans from Operation Flashpoint and ARMA (including more from the Mafia team). The team is hiring though, should you have a Visa and a thirst for true-to-life video games.
“There is a common thread running through our previous games: open worlds, strong storyline and, last but not least, realistic design,” read a statement the company’s official website. “We can proudly say that the games Mafia and Operation Flashpoint were the vanguard of this approach and millions of players worldwide clearly share our view…Even if our new project is different in many respects, it is a game that is not going to disappoint fans of open realistic worlds and quality stories. We are positive we are not making this game for ourselves only but for you as well.”
